Lists of Changes in Taxonomic Opinion

Introduction

The Bacteriological Code (1990 Revision) deals with the nomenclature of prokaryotes. This may include existing names (the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names) as well as new names and new combinations. In this sense the Code is also dealing indirectly with taxonomic opinions. However, as with most codes of nomenclature there are no mechanisms for formally recording taxonomic opinions that do not involve the creation of new names or new combinations. In 2004, the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology (IJSEM) agreed unanimously that it was desirable to cover changes in taxonomic opinions (i.e. the creation of synonyms or the emendation of circumscriptions) previously published outside the IJSEM, and to introduce a "List of Changes in Taxonomic Opinion" (Notification of changes in taxonomic opinion previously published outside the IJSEM).

The first list was published in the January 2005 issue of the IJSEM and subsequent lists should be published once or twice a year.
Scientists wishing to have changes in taxonomic opinion included in future lists should send one copy of the pertinent reprint or a photocopy or a PDF file thereof to the IJSEM Editorial Office* or to the Lists Editor**.

It must be stressed that the date of proposed taxonomic changes is the date of the original publication not the date of publication of the list.

Taxonomic opinions included in the "Lists of Changes in Taxonomic Opinion" cannot be considered as validly published nor, in any other way, approved by the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes and its Judicial Commission.
Consequently, the "List of Changes in Taxonomic Opinion" must be considered as a service to bacteriology and it has no "official character", other than providing a centralized point for registering/indexing such changes in a way that makes them easily accessible to the scientific community.
